We ate here twice whilst we were staying in Margate. The first night the restaurant was quiet so we were able to speak to Terry and Noi. We had an lovely meal and the dim sum was especially good. The meal overall was excellent and extremely good value. We were able to take our own wine. We were delighted to return later in the week when the restaurant was much busier. It has a lovely atmosphere and the ambience very friendly. The star dish this time was the coconut soup. So pleased to have eaten there and to meet Terry and Noi thank you to you both!

Really enjoyed and satisfied my chilli craving in Margate. Yama's is an authentic, cute little spot. However, for a casual eatery/ take away, the price is not a bargain and for that price, I'd would like to see slickly bigger "king prawns" in my soup (£5) and stir fry (£7,50)...General experience is pleasant...

Considering this restaurant is less than a quarter of a mile from our home it has taken my wife and I 3 years to actually eat here. A small no frills place to eat, just as many good local places are, serving Thai and English cuisine. Food is prepared within feet of where you sit and has to rate as some of the tastiest food I have ever eaten which seems a bit mad really for all the places we have visited and that it is right on our doorstep.

There is no on premises license so bring your own wine etc, an added bonus to be honest as most places rip the proverbial out of you for drinks. this visit was with friends so there was six of us and the bill came to £70 !!!!!!!!!!

The staff are amazing and Terry, who is front of house, is mad as a box of frogs but hugely likeable. Top marks for this simple place. They also do takeaway. For bookings on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday book a minimum of 7 days in advance as it is always packed to the rafters as it only seats 22.

One of the best Thai restaurant we've been to, price amazingly cheap as well. Place is full when we came in, but Terry made sure we got a table in 5 mins. Terry is such a friendly and warm host to all his customers and his
wife Noi cooks so delicious
Thai curry!

A small restaurant at the top of the high street. It's probably best to book as we got very lucky walking in and being able to get a table. Friendly service and the best thai food I've had outside Thailand. Absolutely delicious, will definitely be going back.
